Idioms proverbs and adages

Idioms, Proverbs, and Adages

Oh, so that is what it is…



  • Widely known, short sayings that give very basic advice on how to live.

  • They are simpler and shorter than proverbs.


  • The show must go on…

  • You get what you pay for…


  • A proverb is usually longer than an adage

  • It states the collected wisdom and superstitions of humans and has a deeper meaning.


  • Don’t put all your eggs in one basket

  • One man’s trash is another man’s treasure

  • People who live in glass houses should not throw stones


  • An idiom is a group of words that have completely different meaning than what the individual words mean.

  • We use idioms to express things in a creative way and not to give advice or wisdom.


  • She is full of beans – means that she has lots of energy.

  • Hold your horses – means to slow down.
